Developing Records Management Policies and Procedures
Friday 9:45:00 AM – 11:00:00 AM
Sponsor: SMART
Tracks: Administration/Management/Career Development ,  Media & Technology

Some librarians may be given responsibility for implementing a modest records management program in their library or parent organization.  Initially, the librarian, acting as a records manager may begin records management improvements with enthusiasm, but over time the librarian will begin to lose control of the organizationˇs records and the records management systems which were put in place will begin to regress. Often this is caused by a lack of adequate records management policies and procedures, or a situation where those procedures are not followed. This presentation will focus on:

  • The value of documenting policies and procedures
  • How to develop policies and procedures and make sure they are followed
  • How to keep policies up to date and relevant

Speaker(s):
James M. Tammaro, New York State Archives

Peace, Love and the Web
Saturday 9:30:00 AM – 10:45:00 AM
Sponsor: SMART
Tracks: Media & Technology

The web is a 20 years old this year, and we are still in the process of realizing its full potential. Nascent in the original design of the World Wide Web as proposed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 is the idea of building a vast distributed database, not only of documents, but of things as well. In 2001 this vision was christened the Semantic Web, and in 2006 the grassroots Linked Data effort began to put the ideas and technologies to practical use. In this talk I will talk about the progress the Linked Data movement have made in the past 3 years, the role that libraries can play in this information environment, and the efforts at the Library of Congress is making to play its part.

Speaker(s):
Ed Summers, Library of Congress
